Maternity Wear - Buiness Attire

Postby Paula Lawlor » Thu Jul 13, 2006 8:30 pm

Hi There
I hoping someone can point me in the right direction here.......... I was wondering after the IBW conference why I was so tired only to discover that baby no. 2 is on the way so Jan 07 is the big event :D :D :D

But I'm finding it really hard to find any 'business style' maternity clothes in the North West or even on-line. I've loads of the comfy combats etc but I could do with finding some 'work' stuff............... any ideas :?: :?:

Thanks

Paula

Congrats Paula!!! There's a shop in Dub where a friend bought all her business suits but just can think of it and as far as I know you can buy online too - leave it with me and I will ask her in a bit.

Also if you want splash out the Mary Grant stuff is great - that's what I wore last time - but then again times have changed and no-one seems to mind showing off their bumps these days :D

maternity wear in the north west

Postby tregan » Tue Jul 18, 2006 12:02 pm

hi paula,

got this response from my SIL in Sligo.

"However there really is nothing business in Sligo. There is a shop in Galway that has a half price sale at the moment. It is in the bottom floor of the Corbett Court shopping centre and it is called Modern Mum.

There is a shop in Castlebar also has opened since my last pregnancy. Don't know the name but it should be in the telephone book.
I also found mothercare good for basic trousers and shirts. I found you are hotter during pregnancy so I didn't need much in the way of jackets."

Paula - congratulations............ :D

Have a happy and healthy pregnancy..

There is an online shop called www.bumpbasics.ie

I am not sure if you know of a website called Magicmum.com but there is a shopping area in this where you will find bumpbasics.

Good luck.........

Thanks Noreen for the list of shops - I really appreciate it :D :D :D

I'm just back from Dublin where I burned up my credit card at Formes - oh the joys of retail therapy :lol: :lol:

All I need now is a mobile air conditioning unit to pull around after me in this heat 8)

Thanks again to all of you for your good wishes.
